Ooops, this part was actually just for debugging purpose, will remove it

Indeed. It comes from the whole conversion path from decimal to float to
fixed to float to decimal. It's opposite to the goal of being
user-meaningful. I can try a "use only four significant digits", and it
should get read of the approximation, without changing too much the numbers.
